Children can start Modern classes from Year 1 at school, when they can take Grade 1 with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.
Students work their way up through the ISTD grades to Grade 6, at which point those that are capable will move on to Vocational examinations: Intermediate, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2.
Modern is an amalgamation of many other styles of dance, and it is often the style you might expect to see on the West End stage. As the students get older, a lot of the work they cover is also greatly influenced by Contemporary Dance.
Modern is great fun, and a perfect way to compliment and enhance the childrens' other dance styles.
